Carla threatens to stop Maddy from meeting Olly, if she doesn’t get closer to her mom. Soon Maddies mom, finds about the meetings, thus firing Carla, and grounding Maddy by taking away the WiFi. Bored with her life, Maddy decides to runaway with Olly, to Hawaii, to find about if she is actually sick and to finals live her life, for the first time in 18 years, even if it means costing Maddy, her life.
I would rate this book a 5/5 as it was really good. It was Humorous and the plot was good. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Real Life stories, although this is fiction.
